I am 7 months pregnant with my first and have been fighting extreme exhaustion.
So this is my first baby, and I've been feeling tired pretty much since the start. I had severe morning sickness (not keeping food down at all for several days at a time) for 5 months before my ob finally put me on an antacid that leveled it out. So I'm used to being tired. But even though I'm eating more now, my energy hasn't improved. Everything I read says I should be feeling more energetic. I eat healthy options... But even still, I can sleep for 14 hours straight, be up for three to five hours, then sleep for another 14. My ob says that's completely normal, but its making it hard to plan anything for the baby or keep working because all I can do is sleep most of the day.... Is this really normal? Is there something I can do to help? Caffeine helps some but I try to avoid that I know it's not good for you during pregnancy.... Any advice?
